Y by Hayden Nagin and Vernell Dunams
October 5, 2016 - October 21, 2016
October 5–21, 2016
Y is a collaborative project that examines the intersections of gender and sexuality in a hyper-masculine society, as explored through the lens of two artists: Vernell Dunams and Hayden Nagin. The two photographic series displayed, though distinct in tone and style, explore the same theme of identity through gender expression. Y is a title that has two meanings: first, that the intent of the exhibition is to question aspects of gender identity; therefore, Y is a play on words alluding to the question “why?” as well as a reference to the biological responses to said questions. Many of the images in this exhibition explore where the line is drawn separating the male and female genders and how those lines are both culturally and biologically constructed.
Vernell Dunams and Hayden Nagin are juniors in the LSU School of Art. Dunams is double majoring in Spanish and Studio Art with focus in photography, and Nagin is majoring in graphic design with a minor in photography.
